Arctic foothills tundra

WWF Abstract

The only forested area in the ecoregion is in the Noatak River Valley. Birds use the Colville River corridor for migration, and gyrfalcons, peregrine falcons, and rough-legged hawks breed in high concentrations along the river bluffs. The Arctic Foothills Tundra also contains important sites where brown bears and wolves make their homes.
